Hello again, as you can see if seemto have a lot of problems, well on this computer, wich is on my granmas computer, all windows programs take a while to load, IE, links, search for files/folders and bassically all windows programs:huh: :huh: any help?
That's enough for windows 98 to run nicely. First of all, defragmenting the drive would be a start. How long has the windows installation been on the compuer? perhaps it's time to do a clean install, and start fresh?
Empty the internet cache, clear the cookies, download and run adware 6
Do a scandisk then Defrag and clean out Temp file folder(only the files that are over a week old) and Temp Internet file, Internet cache and so on. Over time Win98 will collect a lot of dead weight. Look in the "StartUp" folder and see what is loading at startup. If any of the proggies there are not used anymore delete them and uninstall them. Clear off the excess fat and dead proggies. run reg clean to tiddy up the dead links in the reg then do a defrag again. also Make sure that win98 is controling the size of your "page file" and you don't have it set to manual.
The "scandisk " helps alot because if you have had proggies crash and lock up the system their files become corrupt and cause the system to slow down when loading. You'ld be suprised as to how many times this can happen. Many older proggies for win98 and that were written for win95 but used in win98 are TSR (terminate and stay resident) and will hold on to memory and not release it. That makes everything run Slooooooooow.
Oops, sorry. I didn't even look to see that you are not in the U.S. He was a sidekick to Johnny Carson (late night talk show host). He had this certain laugh and he would always say things like "You are correct sir".
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
